Just Diamond and Food Staffs.

Due to Mobutu's Centralised Economy , and lack of infratucture.

Only South East and Western Congo are industrulised.

Now that the country is federalised and the province has started to keep 40% of diamond revenue things are starting to looking better now.
It's only been one year since the country has gone federal.
Before a 100% of the province's revenu used to go to the central government. Then the province stayed brock.

Patient because the future is on their side,as A Wise Old Owl rhyme/poem. The spirit of optimism and commitment can never be overcame.

Yupes,

I hear you my brother. I have given up, with current leadership there is no hope. Both cities have no electricity or clean water....48 years after independence.

Peace,

Mulopwe

Mulopwe , You know the kind of situation the country is in for the last 10 years.

How can you expect change in that kind of situation ? instead the country was destroyed with the help of Jean Pierre Bembe, By the Rwandese, Ugandese and Burundese.

Congo has just had 2 years of democracy, which is being drained back in the gutter.
I do agree with you on one thing , i'm losing faith in the new leadership because they can't beat Nkunda.

But you got to know one thing though. The country has gone Federal system now. and starting next year , there will be 26 provinces instead of 11 , and every province has to keep 40% of revenue.
Only 60% percent will go to the central gov.
Privatisation is being adopted slowly, but carefully.

South africans have Invested about $3 Billion , UAE $ 800 million, Now China $ 9 Billion .

In just 2 years 12 Billions have been invested in the country, and you have Brazil just opened a new office in Lubumbashi for investement in Steel and Iron business. Indian is about to build a hydroelectric DAM between Bandundu and Kasai Occ. , A new cement factory is to built by Kisangani, the Chinese are already building a 90 KM Lubumbashi -Kasumbalesa Freeway. A 95 Km asphalted road construction is now underway. another 75 Km road is under contruction the two in Bandundu region, a 35 Km Urban roads are being rebuild in Kananga.
There are build building Urban roads in Mbuji-Mayi also.
There is a 35 KM roads , Bukavu-Kavumu Airport under contruction.

The $ 2.2 Billion investement by South African Business Men is due to start in early 2009.
Likasi -Kolwezi Highway is under contruction.
Ndjili Airport- Gombe Freeway is to begin in early 2009.

The new Minister of Agruculture has ordered 700 tractors to relunch the Agruculture.

"Hopefully we are also going to have the Brazilans start their venture soon in Steel & Iron and Oil in Equateur, the Australians in Alluminum in Bas-Congo, Koreans in Methane Gas in Lake Kivu"

In all respect , please don't count Mobutu's 32 years . we don't need to focus on the past. It's already gone and we will not get back that time.

I know and undustand how you feel. all we have to do is learn from the past or we are going to repeat it.



These things aren't bad, are they?


Here is how provinces will be like in the next 3 years starting next year.

I personally think it's a good idea , there will be governed better than the big ones.
Good for development . Give it some time like YUPES said it.

Things are getting better, Mulopwe.

One of the things I've been following is the development of possibly the world's largest undeveloped copper/cobalt mine northwest of Lubumbashi. This will produce up to 250 million pounds of copper per year and 18 million pounds of cobalt per year. In addition to taxes and employment, Congo will benefit because Gecamines owns 17.5% of the operation directly. When copper goes back to $4 (it will get there) this will be awesome.

That won't be the situation for long. There are plenty of areas now being connected to the electricity grid.

Butembo21,


I was in Mbuji Mayi , Kananga and Kinshasa 4 months ago. Things are are not good at all. Clean water and eletricity is the basic. Imagine Mbuji Mayi has over 3 millions, Kananga 2 millions, regideso provide water sporadically at 4am each day for an hour and half.

The number street kids in Kinshasa is unbelievable. Many parents are unable to send theirs childrens in schools because of the fees. Country like ours, primary education should be free.

Look at what is happening in Kivu. Current leadership has failed. Incapable to organise dissent army or police force. Our mothers and sisters are being abuse daily by the so called CNDP.

Current leadership has failed. He is young and inexperience to lead vast and complex nation like ours.

Peace and respect to all,

Mulopwe

I totaly agree with you on all these issues, the Police , the Army, Education ,Elctricticy, Agruculture and Health,Espacialy in Big cities , since they all face the same problems.
Don't get me wrong ON THIS.
We can't have all this if we don't have the money, and we can't just invest in one or two things. They have to invest in every of those listed above.

We need to sell our minerals so that we have the money to rebuild, if we don't sell anything then we don't have the money and the result will continue to a sad story.

32 years of Mobutu's nightmare rule, 10 years of agressive and civil war.

It's not going to be easy as you ecpect, the country nedds foreign investements in order to get out the gutter.

Rebuilding a nation that has been destroyed and neglected like ours is no joke or a simple ride.
However, i like the current economic policies so far.

For me , what concerns me the most is Police and Army. We need a better trained , equiped , disciplined army and police force, all other things will be fixed if the current economic policies and growth continues.
If no one buys our minerals then we don't have the money .
Remember we need money for all these things to be reality, and the can't be done in one day, month or 2 or three years it will take some time.

Very interesting projects in the works, thank you Butembo21.

Quote:
In many of the world's poorest countries, privatisation of essential public services has already taken place as a result of structural adjustment programmes imposed by the IMF and World Bank. The effects of this privatisation programme have been disastrous, as the World Bank itself admits.

The introduction of school fees where there was previously free education has driven many poor families to withdraw their children from school, while hospital fees have put basic health care beyond the reach of millions.

Water privatisation is just one example. The World Bank notes that water in Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince costs up to 10 times as much from the private sector as it does from the public supply, and that poor families in Mauritania now have to spend a fifth of their household income on water.

The other key privatisation which threatens the developing world is the privatisation of knowledge. At the same time as liberalisation has opened up access to the markets and resources of the developing world, the WTO's controversial TRIPs agreement (on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) has closed down developing countries' access to the new technology and medical advances which could greatly benefit their people.

Yet the WTO aims to restrict the right of developing countries to produce cheaper drugs for their own people, forcing them instead to accept private expensive ownership of brand-named medicines through long patents.
